Internazionale 4-1 Tottenham Hotspur (agg 4-4 Tottenham win on away goals) – Europa League – 14th March 2013

Tottenham survived a superb Inter Milan assult at the San Siro to eventually come out on top in the tie courtesy of away goals.

Emmanuel Adebayor, a player who has endured a difficult season with Spurs, was the goal-hero for the north Londoners, netting a precious away goal in extra time after goals from Antonio Cassano, Rodrigo Palacio and a William Gallas own-goal had seen the home side get back on level terms.

After Adebayor’s goal, Ricky Alvarez struck back for the Serie A giants but ultimately it wasn’t enough for the home side as Spurs progressed on away goals.

It was always going to be difficult for a Spurs side shorn of man-of-the-moment Gareth Bale, who was suspended, and right enough, Inter had the better of things for long periods of the game.

However, that goal from ex-Gunner Adebayor was enough to see off the challenge of the Nerazzurri and put the north Londoners through to the last eight of the competition.

    We are starting to believe but please no more Livermore or Defoe as both could not make it into any top side on current displays.
    Adebayor deserves a run and without bale and Lennon we do not have anyone who can scare the opposition.

    Spurs looked awful last night, although the game itself was essential viewing for the drama alone.

    I suspect it was a coincidence but they looked a different team without Bale running things. Given that Bale would have been a dead cert to play had he not got booked for cheating in the last game, his simulation could have cost his team dearly.

    As for the mighty Toon, we are clearly the best team in the competition… (Christ, we were lucky last night!)

    @HotSpur922 – my last statement was firmly tongue-in-cheek. I do not think that we have a prayer!
